- Matthias Peter Wimmer

* Fixed hostname handling at SASL module to use hostname provided
by the caller instead of current local server name (reported and
fixed by Matthias Petter Wimmer)

* Fixed wrong axl version referenced from 0.6.4 to 0.7.0

- Robert Münch

* Reported wrong vsnprintf header definition when log is enabled
on Mac/OSX

* Reported various NULL values returned as axl_false at
__vortex_connection_new

- Ralf Konush

* Reported header redefinitions using various Visual Studio
versions

Changes since 1.1.14
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* [fix] Several updates to make the vortex bundle for w32 to include
libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll by default...

* [fix] Fixed xml-rpc-gen-1.1 to produce Makefile.am files that
separates headers from sources so headers are installed for client
libraries.

* [fix] Fixed some unused result warnings found at py-vortex module.

* [fix] Updated vortex_tls_log_ssl to avoid buffer overflow when not
found openssl error format.

* [fix] Several updates to make libvortex-1.1 ssl API to allow loading
certificates from a PEM certificate loaded from memory. Now this
method is supported along with the previously one which is loading
PEM certificates from files. Now it is possible to load a certificate
and then use it at the right moment without having to have especial
permissions.

* [fix] Some cleanups at PyVortex to better handle wrong connection
references received at channel pool creation.

* [fix] Documentation updates on VortexTlsCertificateFileLocator and
VortexTlsPrivateKeyFileLocator

* [fix] Improved waiting code to send all pending replies just after
sending greeting after TLS handshake.

* [fix] Several updates to make vortex_tls module to notify additional
information about timeout settings, when it was started, when
stopped and what connection the message applies when a timeout is
reached during sync TLS activation.

* [fix] Making vortex.tls.start_tls to allow threading (other python
functions) when called.

* [fix] Making vortex_connection_ref_internal to report
connection->ref_count > 1 instead of axl_true. There are suspicions
that some race may cause reporting true when in fact the reference
isn't working.

* [fix] Removed --Werror from building autogen.sh.

* [fix] Added additional checks to avoid defining vsnprintf header
when log is enabled on Mac/OSX (reported by Robert Münch).

* [fix] Fixed reporting NULL instead of axl_false in
__vortex_connection_new (reported by Robert Münch).

* [fix] Fixed vortex-client.c warning reported by clang.

* [fix] Updated autogen.sh to allow supporting Centos packaging..

* [fix] Several updates to fix compile errors when enabling stack
protector with gcc.

* [fix] Added initial working files to produce rpm packages.

* [fix] Updated vortex-web-socket API to include an option to allow
disabling certificate verification. API added:

- VORTEX_WEBSOCKET_CONF_CERT_VERIFY

* [fix] Fixed libaxl wrong version reference, moving it from 0.6.4 to
0.7.0 (reported by Matthias Peter Wimmer).

* [fix] Updated hostname handling done by SASL module to make client
initiator to report and use HOSTNAME configured by the caller or the
value reported by vortex_sasl_get_server_name or
vortex_sasl_get_host (), instead of current local server name. Bug
reported by fixed by Matthias Petter Wimmer).

* [fix] Fixed args reference used at main module to have Vortex
compiled for Android.

* [fix] Added several updates to support detecting nopoll, gsasl and
axl even when pkg-config is not present..

* [fix] Updated configure.ac file to detect if bash is outside common
location to detect those cases before continue.

* [fix] Removed call to freeaddrinfo() when getaddrinfo() fails. It is
segfaulting application on FreeBSD.

* [fix] Updated configure.ac to fix pkg-config output which is broken on
FreeBSD.


* [fix] Fixed regression test (vortex-regression-listener.c) to grab a
reference to the connection to implement connection close checks for
reg-test (test_15).

* [fix] Updated thread pool event removal handler to check ctx and
ctx->thread_pool references.

* [fix] Adding initial files to support creating binary packages for
FreeBSD 9.X

* [fix] Adding packaging support for http, pull,sasl and tls modules
for FreeBSD..

* [fix] Adding package descriptions for libvortex-1.1 (tunnel)
extensions for FreeBSD

* [fix] Adding websocket packaging for FreeBSD..

* [fix] Adding packaging support for xml-rpc modules for FreeBSD

* [fix] Added FreeBSD packing support for python-vortex

* [fix] Added more code to configure.ac to detect alternative
locations for axl.pc

* [fix] Updated freebsd directories to avoid using :

* [fix] Fixing references when websocket support is disabled.

* [fix] Fixed .def rebuilding at main Makefile.am causing compilation
problems when optional modules like tls, web-socket or sasl aren't
enabled.

* [fix] Updated vortex.h to allow defining a VORTEX_SKIP_ERRNO_REDEF
variable to avoid errno redefinition on windows (which seems to be
causing problems in Visual Studio 12).

* [fix] Added code to detect Visual Studio 11 2012 and above to avoid
errno redefinition.

* [fix] Applied some updates in vortex.h to avoid header redefinition
warnings
(reported by Ralf Konush).
